WHEAt and barley Legacy for Breeding Improvement

Trainings Allele mining / genetic analysis / Data Analysis – June 2017 – Wageningen

During the course of the WHEALBI project, an important focus is given to the knowledge transmission.

After the Phenotyping and Genotyping trainings organised in April-Mai 2016, two other workshops/trainings are organised  in June 2017 in Wageningen:

  • Whealbi workshop 1: Allele mining / genetic analysis
    Organizer: University of Zurich
    Wageningen, 6-7 June 2017

Registration: Each training has a limited number of attendees (25) so please register as quickly as possible.  Attendance is free of charge. Each training can be attended independently.

Please pre-register on eventbrite and send directly an email  to [ contact (at) whealbi.eu or daniela.bustoskorts (at) wur.nl ] with your background, current employee or current studies followed, and short explanation of your interest to participate to the training.
